Adult Altar Servers

We Remember, We Celebrate, We Believe

Our Catholic funeral rite confidently proclaims that God has created each person for eternal life, and that Jesus Christ by his death and resurrection has conquered sin and death. This celebration of the funeral rite affirms and expresses the union of the Church on earth with the Church in heaven in the one great communion of saints. St. Peter’s is need of Adult Servers to assist with this celebration.

Funeral masses are normally scheduled for 9:30 and 10:30 in the morning. Please consider this beautiful ministry if your schedule allows, it does not require a large time commitment. If you should have any questions please contact Theresa Bruno: 201-261-3366.
